Reviewing rules

Review Procedure of Scientific Articles Submitted for Publication in "Studia Maritima".

1. The journal's editorial board conducts an initial evaluation of the submitted texts regarding their compatibility with the journal's profile and basic requirements concerning scientific methodology and substantive level. Articles that do not meet the basic publication conditions are rejected.

2. At least two independent reviewers from outside the academic unit affiliated by the author of the publication are appointed to assess each preliminarily qualified article.

3. The author(s) and reviewers do not know each other's identities (the so-called double-blind review process).

4. If the reviewer knows the identity of the author of the reviewed work, they must sign a declaration of no conflict of interest, meaning no:

a. Direct personal relationships (up to the second degree of kinship, marital relationship, legal relationships, conflict),
b. Professional subordination relationships,
c. Direct scientific cooperation during the two years preceding the year of review preparation.

5. The review takes the form of a written document and concludes with a clear decision regarding the acceptance of the article for publication, conditional acceptance for publication after addressing identified flaws, or rejection.

6. In the case of one negative review, a third reviewer is appointed. The final decision on the acceptance or rejection of the article is made by the editor-in-chief.

7. The review template is available on the journal's website [download the review form].

8. The names of reviewers for individual articles are not disclosed. The list of reviewers collaborating with the "Studia Maritima" journal is published annually on the journal's website.

9. Upon receiving the reviews, the authors are obliged to make corrections to the article taking into account the reviewer's comments.

10. Before publication, the article undergoes verification by a language editor and a publishing editor.

Duties of reviewers

Contribution to editorial decisions: Peer reviews assist the editor in making editorial decisions and may also help authors to improve their manuscript. Should the reviewer have critical remarks concerning the manuscript, they are to assess whether in spite of these the manuscript can be accepted for publication. If it is so, the reviewer should also formulate suggestions of improvements and/or additions to be made. The reviewer in such case can demand another insight in the corrected manuscript or – in case of remarks of lesser factual significance – leave the decision to the editorial board.

Competence and promptness: Any selected reviewer who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its timely review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself/herself from the review process.

Confidentiality: The whole manuscript received for review must be treated as confidential document and shall not be used for personal profit. The manuscript must not be shown to or discussed with others except those authorized by the editor.

Acknowledgement of sources: Reviewers should identify the relevant published work that has not been cited by authors. Any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper should be reported to the editor.

Standards of objectivity: Reviews should be conducted objectively and expressed clearly by means of appropriate arguments. The reviewed academic articles are confidential and reviewed anonymously (double-blind review process). Generally the reviewers and the author(s) have to be affiliated with different academic institutions. If, however, the reviewer knows the identity of the author and believes that there is a conflict of interests, they should notify the editorial board about this fact. The reviewers are obliged to disclose potential conflict of interests, pertinent in particular to:

  • direct personal relations (of kinship, legal connections)
  • professional subordination
  • collaborative relations in scholarly research within the past two years prior to the reviewing process.

For this purpose the reviewers are requested to fill in and sign the Reviewer’s declaration available on the website of the journal STUDIA MARITIMA in the menu option “Reviewing procedure”

Transparency of the reviewing procedure: The current list of reviewers is published in each issue and on the Journal’s website but the surnames of reviewers of a particular article are not revealed. Rules of assessing articles and a reviewing form are made public on the Journal’s website in the section “Reviewing procedure”. Reviews are in written form and are basis for accepting or rejecting an article. If there is a controversy, the final decision is made by the thematic editors together with the Academic Advisory Council of STUDIA MARTIMA.
